Photo Coverage: Atlantic Theater Company's THE THREEPENNY OPERA Celebrates Opening Night

Atlantic Theater Company presents the revival of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's musical The Threepenny Opera. Directed and choreographed by Martha Clarke, the production just opened last night, April 7 and will now play through Sunday, May 11, 2014 off-Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company's main stage Linda Gross Theater (336 West 20th Street). BroadwayWorld brings you photos from inside opening night below!

THE THREEPENNY OPERA features a celebrated cast of 15, including Academy Award winner F.Murray Abraham, Sophie Bortolussi, Jon David Casey, Lindsey Dietz-Marchant, Timothy Doyle, Lilli Cooper, Rick Holmes, John Kelly, Sally Murphy, Tony Award nominee Mary Beth Peil, Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes, Emmy Award winner Michael Park, Cristina Spina, Paola Styron and John William Watkins.

Based on John Gay's The Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera follows the charismatic scoundrel Macheath (Park) and his criminal exploits in 19th century London. When Macheath marries Polly Peachum (Osnes), the straight-laced daughter of powerful, miserly merchant JJ Peachum (Abraham), their unlikely union unleashes the chaos of manhunts, bribes, and imprisonment. In this "opera for beggars," an assortment of salacious characters maneuver for advantage amid a profoundly corrupt society.
